Welcome to the arts society Gibraltar
Hello Members and Fellow Art Lovers
The mission of the organisation is to promote, encourage and foster the arts and cultural activities in Gibraltar and to export our culture abroad.
What a year it has been!
Well our 2020/2021 season came to an end with a wonderful presentation given by Bertie Pearce on Now You See It, Now You Don’t and we are now looking forward to October when our next season starts with a presentation by Sian Walters on Raphael: A Master in the Making. We were to have this lecture in April last year marking the 500th anniversary of Raphael’s death in April 1520, however, it was not to be thanks to the Covid 19 Virus.
We have a varied programme of lectures for the next 7 months. See here for the full programme
At the beginning of October we will be holding our AGM, the details of which will follow, and we also hope to be able to organise a festive Society Dinner in November/December, again details will follow.
In the meantime we hope you are all taking advantage of the recent wonderful “Very Curious, Very Curious 80 days” email sent by The Arts Society providing a virtual journey around the world this summer with the assistance of their amazing accredited lecturers.
Have a wonderful summer.
Yours in Art
The Arts Society Gibraltar
VERY CURIOUS, VERY CURIOUS...
Coming 1st July
Join our virtual journey around the world this summer with a new lecture programme. Follow in the footsteps of Phileas Fogg and explore 25 destinations over 80 days – from wherever you are. Be guided by our Accredited Lecturers as you enjoy the arts from around the globe.
No steamer, railway or elephant required.
Taking creative licence in following the itinerary originally devised in Jules Verne’s Around the World in Eighty Days, we explore the art and culture of three continents through the eyes of our Lecturers. Paris, Mumbai, Singapore, Yokohama, San Francisco are just a few of the exhilarating stops along the way. With 25 lectures, a book club, live Zoom meetings and a plethora of curated activities such as cocktail mixing and virtual museum visits, this series is the perfect remedy to another summer of limited travel activity.
Sign up as a Virtual Traveller for free to enjoy the 80 Days “festival” of events. Invite friends to join on our journey, and meet new people. Share your own memories and photos from the destinations we visit. Receive regular updates on our journey as we release new lectures in real time.
This programme is a pilot for future online content commissioning, so we invite Members to give feedback and help us shape our digital membership offer.
